Two Orphaned Drawings from Personal Appearances

Update 12/12/14: Watch videos of me drawing this Spidey! See final colored Spidey drawing below.

Ms. Megaton Man, from Genghis Con, Cleveland, Nov. 30, 2014.

I will part with no drawing before its time! Here are a couple of drawings I began at recent personal appearances (Ms. Megaton Man at Genghis Con in Cleveland, Nov 30, 2014 and Spidey at the Frank L. Melaga Art Museum in Brownsville PA, Dec 8, 2014), but ran out of time to complete them on-site. I later finished inking them, including making minor corrections, at home.

There is nothing more tragic than a homeless cartoon drawing, especially during the holidays! If you can provide safe, warm shelter for works of art like these, please contact me. Or, if you would like to commission a completely new, custom made drawing of your favorite character, please visit my commission rate page. Thanks, and have a happy holiday season!

Gallery Talk and Cartooning Demo at the Melaga

Here are some pictures of the gallery talk and demo held this past Saturday at the Frank L. Melaga Art Museum in Brownsville PA. As you can see, the turn out was good and I looked at the work of several aspiring cartoonists as well. I demonstrated my tracing paper technique as well as penciling, inking, and some corrections. The exhibit, Megaton Man: Rebirth@Half-Life, was supposed to end this coming weekend, but is going to be held over to Sunday, February 1, 2015! So if you haven't seen it yet, make your plans to visit Brownsville!
